For those casual holiday events, when I just can’t bring myself to throw on a dress in this chilly Winter weather, a fancy top will do just fine. The idea of “dressing up” for the holidays doesn’t always mean wearing a dress. Sometimes to meet the dress code, all you need is a top in romantic prints and rich jewel tones. This floral print in moody fuchsias and deep greens fall into the festive color scheme and still feels right for holiday. With a striking red lip, a pair of fitted black jeans and boots, I feel set for the party. I added a bunch of pretty options below, ideal for holiday events, Christmas day and even New Year’s Eve.
